Sir Elton John - Elton John Eager To Work With Kanye West Again

Veteran rocker Sir Elton John is keen to reunite in the studio with Kanye West after realising he was "in the presence of greatness" while working on the rapper's star-studded All Of The Lights track.

The Rocket Man star joined the likes of Alicia Keys, Kid Cudi, Fergie, John Legend and Rihanna to lend his vocals to the 2011 hit and he was so in awe of West's creative talent, he admits he would love to collaborate with him again.

He tells RollingStone.com, "In the studio with Kanye, when I was doing that (All of the Lights) in Honolulu (Hawaii), he was just on fire. It was amazing to watch. You knew you were in the presence of greatness. I knew once I heard four or five tracks from that (My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album) in the studio, I knew it was going to be a motherf**ker of a record...

"(His 2008 album) 808s & Heartbreak came out of left field and just blew my mind. I was like, 'What?' And then each album he does is a little different... I love Kanye because he's not afraid of taking a chance and pushing barriers. Working with people like that is something that I really enjoy."

And Elton, who previously teamed up with rapper Eminem for an unlikely duet at the 2001 Grammy Awards, reveals he is also eyeing a collaboration with Pharrell Williams as he attempts to incorporate more hip-hop music into his own work: "I might do a couple of tracks with Pharrell. I don't know.

"I'd love to (add more of a hip-hop sound to my music). I just don't know how to do it... So, for me, I'd have to work with someone who knows about it, like a Pharrell or a Kanye, who I respect tremendously. I'd love to do that. It's just a matter of when and where and, should I do it, the mood that I'm in. You can never tell. It's happenstance and luck, basically."

It is the hardest thing I had to get over this can never happen to me again, as I read the recipes cherries, apples, grapes, orchard work, is extremely important food produce, that I can't let it go, so I am care about myself.you do the same. the sun has gone down over the mountains, which my father's my emtiness without him is real, I will accept it.one of famous poeple is in the city, buses coming in, its coffee time, my picking bottles and cans, cleaning up the garbage keeps me slowly getting back to the work and job, jog. so I can't run, but I know being at home and resting, and eating, enjoying weather/birds, two robbins, one woodpeckerflew over from sidewalk to the car overwindow, sparrows, make a nest in high bushes, nice. budding leaves, at dad's. I"m careful, what I am exercising, and am alone, its not like I haven't called them over my children, they're happy and I know they'll join me. is not a dad a dad? my home back there it can wait, I am safe, nothing will go to me, my friend in Vancouver is at home. I don't know how I 'll chose my future. if anyone will be in my life or not, I was hoping my kids would stay withme, maybe in my house in Zhoda. my bike its like 10 spped like a car. I am careful. dont' you try that. I vacuumed before picking up my mail, I cleaned sunday night, I did get a hamburger big mac bought by someone for me, coupon but I dont' go to any thinking of sharing my life there. CErtainly not!! no one in Kelowna, many products have been made of daddy, home, logging, lumber, furniture's things, like wheat recipe magazine, Without You. all the work I did volunteering, even Caesars thats what was so fantastic!! cops good all ones like them FBI"s have this neat version of cements'. good things will happen. but we can't be everywhere all the time. its important to be safe, when people let lie down your safety, you must be safeer!! then as malaysean 777 airplane I seen on news that night, cuz I get thenews, no t.v. inmy apartment yet, for the life of me, I can't figure out why on earth they dont' have better po's for secrurity. hope they find, them, nid eh, whatever it is, its always look out for yourself, take care, hope to take better care of myself. I will am making it work out. oh, I got free really free jeans today. although life changes- mom and dad never do- their Daffodils bloom every year as their marriage did too, until death due us part as God's bible states, I really know they were in love with each other until 62 years of acknowledgement on a telephone, blessed parents sweetness of life, they are to me, I will miss them, its a good thing. God's little birdies and songs they sing to listen to, I am a great bird watcher, I just love tis hobby ofmne. we , me and clarence joe, has Bushnell Binoculars bought from working hard everyday saved up, bankingmoney, then we would go shopping! never in my life would I ever think that the mistrust of his attitude would change. so take care, hope you are eating healthy, hey dear Elton be like the soldiers of the war, check 100 times too your comings and goings, like my nephew Tommy Krasna, a war soldier of 20 years national defense line in Canada. do that. you'll be happy I know you are. I like you, so take care, I'll be ok. I am planing work, I read a lot. chapts' JOHN< ISiah, Corinthians,am hoping to plant a garden this year, are you getting in your strawberries?lvoe adele
